Lectures and playlists are set to “unlisted” on YouTube. This means that they are not searchable. However, this method is known as “security by obscurity.” Anyone with the link will have access to the video content. At the end of the term, we’ll unpublish your videos. It will be your decision (after we've transferred the recordings over to you for long-term storage) how you'd like to provide access to the content.
We do our best to balance providing easy access to lecture content while respecting privacy and security. But, as with any online content, instructors should be aware that there are tools that allow viewers to download or copy lecture content.
At the end of the term, the video status is changed from unlisted to private.
